Basham had a great career at Ohio, where he had 137 tackles, a whopping 38.5 for loss, and 27.0 sacks. He has good size height wise, he gets good pressure on the quarterback, he commands double teams, and he is a great pass rusher. He is also a sure fire tackler, and a play maker on defense. On the other side, he is on the light side, and he does not have elite edge rush speed. With that said, Basham should end up being a late day 2, to early day 3 pick when it is all said and done.
